Joint Oireachtas Committee on Health
Medical Cannabis Access Programme Update: Discussion
Dr. Lorraine Nolan:
I have an update. The question was asked earlier about the position in Denmark and whether a consultant was required to initiate treatment under its cannabis access programme. Any doctor may prescribe but for particular conditions, such as a neurological condition, such as epilepsy, multiple sclerosis or spinal cord injury, a consultant must be involved with the prescribing.
